Real Madrid's Vinicius Junior is quick. Like, seriously quick.
The 18-year-old was snapped up by the Spanish giants for a reported £40 million fee from Flamengo on a pre-contract agreement in May 2017.
He rose to prominence in Brazil with Real Madrid wasting no time in recruiting the youngster, and it looks like a great decision.

Vinicius arrived at the clubs training base to train with the first-team, and he casually ruined a few of his new teammates while setting up Gareth Bale.
That pace. Frightening. Good luck to full-backs trying to cope with him next season.
He also produced this sublime piece of skill.
Vinicius could be wrecking havoc next season but not in a Real Madrid shirt.
The budding prospect is being linked with a loan spell away from the iconic Bernabeu.
Reports suggest he may join a club nearby to gain experience. Getafe, Leganes, Rayo Vallecano are the most likely destinations.

The first hints that Vinícius Júnior may play with Castilla next season have surfaced online. The club supposedly feel it could be a safer option than a loan, with the added bonus of first team involvement.:flag_br: #RealMadridCastilla pic.twitter.com/4KxzG8pHLp

Anyway, despite being a teenage, Vinicius will reportedly earn close to 7.5 million euros annually.
That means he would earn more than Marco Asensio, Casemiro and Dani Carvajal, as well as some other players in the squad.

Real Madrid aren't messing about. They were hellbent on securing his services at whatever cost.
One thing is for sure; he's a very, very exciting talent. Real Madrid appear to have a hell of a player on their books.
